if it attacks a certain religion can't be prosecuted under free speech u.s. laws an not a hate crime. >>> you just brought up there are laws against someone running into a theater and yelling fire, to incite something. this man had to have known if you put out this type of video that that would incite a melee, attacks, something. could it be attacked up der that provision? >> you raise a good point. it goes that point directly. i'm sure when he made the film, he was trying to be provocative and trying to anger those over 1 billion muslims worldwide. however, yelling fire in a theater, that's a crime but not's not an expression of a political view or of an art form. on the other hand, making this vicious film, an attack on a religion is a form of artistic expression. we may hate it, we may disagree with it. what makes us americans under the first amendment, we can express ourselves in any way we want in this country as long as it's political artistic and it's a legitimate form of expression. it's not prosecutable in the united states. the rest of the world has a hard time understanding this, w

, is that mormonism in many ways is the quintessential american religion. joseph smith saw america as the promise land, as the place where the second coming would happen and it's a religion, basically, based in and vested in the idea of american exceptionalism. on the one hand, that should enable governor romney to talk about america in that way. the other point that he makes that you alluded to earlier, a religion in terms of its existence in america is based on adversity and prejudice and combatting adversity and that should allow him also to rise to the occasion during presidential campaign. >> it makes it, presumably, a stronger campaigner out there, given the rough and tumble of a political campaign that's under way. you've also uncovered a really intriguing, pretty good picture that we've never seen of mitt romney before. i'll put it up on the screen. i want you to explain what's going on in this picture. >> yes, we think it's from about 1969, wolf. it's why governor romney was on his missionary lead in france as a young man and it was when he was still courting then ann davies who was later to

situation. the foreigners kill our people, they insult our religion burning the holy quran and making cartoons of prophet muhammad. if we do not defend islam, then we are not islam. suicide bombing attacks are now daily occurrences in afghanis n afghanistan. and the method of the insurgents are constantly changing. the enemy don't use their old tactics, now they use women, sometimes children and teenagers. they even get dressed up in military uniforms. they don't fight face-to-face, they're cowards. the taliban denies using children as suicide bombers, the facts tell a very different story. authorities say just a few days ago a 10 yerld boy managed to escape from insurgents who were going to make him wear a suicide vest so he could blow himself up in front of coalition troops. ruhallah has a 4-year-old son who he says he loves and misses very much. when i ask him how he'd feel if his child was used as a suicide bomber, he tells me -- if he wants to be a suicide bomber when he gets older, well, then, no one can stop him. if he follows islam and does it for islam, then that's a good th
